Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing worse than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has under-performed the peer group more often than not. stock picking has not really benefited results, which have tended to be relatively better in a falling market.

He is currently Head of Strategy, Absolute Return and manages the Jupiter Absolute Return Fund (Unit Trust) as well as the Jupiter Global Absolute Return and Global Levered Absolute Return funds (SICAV).

Performance vs peer group composite: James Clunie
How a manager matches up against their peers gives you some idea of how talented they are. Very few managers perform equally well in rising and falling markets, so knowing which type of market a manager is capable of performing well within is also important.
